Immunomodulators are becoming very popular in the worldwide natural health industry as people start to realize the importance of a healthy immune system in the maintenance of health and the prevention and recovery of disease. Help the immune system, and the body helps itself - often quite considerably. An immunomodulator, also known as an immunotherapy is a substance (e.g. a drug) which has an effect on the immune system.

This review gives a brief introduction of various immunomodulators.
